police used tear gas on vauxhall and old first houses of the center of ukraine's counter so after thousands walkouts to demand the country's leadership resign it's now being on the e.q. we may not give it to explode the pressure of least for all russia the only thing the european union can try to do is keep believing storming anybody rush up who cares. meanwhile brussels points the finger at moscow for disrupting the deal despite a key of statements it was only being pragmatic one making the choice. also this hour the enemy within where polls claim the cia recruited gone tunneled prison as a double agents using them as spies after their release of c.s.s. is the walking's of the proxies which sounds x.
calls into outlaws and our own country. i'm no mercy for now they were john bahrain keeps the country's most famous human rights activists behind bars despite being eligible for reading. and welcome to the international i'm you know chicago welcome to the program police have this person to government process in the very heart of ukraine's capital using tear gas and bought homes more than a week and people have been calling for the president to resign over their decision to back out of a landmark trade deal with the easy and it's a question of scale has it always helps. during the week e of central square was the stage of the mass protest of those supporting your
integration and opposing president acknowledges decision not to sign the euro association deal in vilnius it is no longer the case right police is not controlling the area during the night several hundred policemen came here and dispersed the crowd more than thirty people were arrested and more than forty had to be hospitalized with different injuries many have been protesting against his decision i talk to some of them let's have a look at my report. italy. greece. spain. portugal. and ukraine a similar picture looks are deceiving one number of european countries has been protesting against brussels policy ukraine is probably the only one where people are taking to the streets in tens of thousands to support the idea of your integration or even then yes we deserved to be in europe but i see the deal would
have allowed us to get better education in europe but this was not about being in the e.u. joining the union was not even on the table the two hundred page blueprint of the agreement never said anything about a visa free regime where he isn't about that my wife can go to poland and buy a lot of food for just ten her even though which is just over a dollar that's twice as much as i can buy here for a hundred greville but the government was concerned that ukraine's domestic product would be swarmed by cheap or easy you goods the worst case scenario could have been factory closures and a catastrophe unemployment rate and brussels was offering no compensation for any potential economic losses despite that ukraine's leadership has hinted at a deal may still materialize in march next year that would mean a longer winter on the streets for the angry crowds who are refusing to go home they want the president's head. before they do a look see russia the r.t. reporting from kiev in ukraine the process is believe the country's leadership that
future by leaving the e.u. trade deal on a scrap paper although won't a haystack agreement could devastate the country's economy people still want to end as key of the exterior of these of the agreements next year also has paul scott has been finding out what went wrong this time. it's. a moment of on power allowed access to the ukrainian president viktor young a cold which comes face to face with e.u. leaders for the first time since stalling on historic trade deal the whole thing caught on camera i think it was i i i i. i i i think it's clear that kiev decision to hold for seedings has run cold e.u. leaders following years of negotiations the e.u. senses outside influence we have to set aside short term political calculations.
and we may not give in to external pressure not the least from russia. to cause which is the financial deal all thought isn't large enough to prevent damage to ukraine's flailing economy of course neither ukrainian businesses nor the government have this amount of money or will have any time soon that's why ukraine is not ready to take responsibilities is not capable of fulfilling yet oh so where does this leave the situation ukraine's proposals for trilateral talks with russia were rejected by the brussels finances may not allow them to increase the offer to kiev look at the european union massive run column employment throughout the course of the entire union they have a euro currency project which is a fiasco realistically the only thing the european union can try to do is keep blame storming anybody russia who cares because the european union is ultimately
falling apart at the seams so the e.u. departs vilnius contemplating what might have been despite courting president they simply seemed unable to offer him a deal that was tempting enough scots r.t. vilnius lithuania. as ukraine says no to the e.u. many within the block in south us say knows who its central policy young national is from belgium have invited right wing movements from all across the continent to talk about how to fight liberalism and we spoke to one political activist who is taking part in the we are the youth conference and he says unemployment is the main driving force behind the rise of extremism. it's only spain and portugal finding a job is not that easy these days so of course people go looking for especially
young people go looking and searching for solutions and i think that there are some movements that give these solutions to the problems of today that the capitalist liberal system has cost the government over the european union. totally don't care about the jobs of young people so we can see that people are looking for alternatives we can not say that it's a fact a nationalist revolution we can just say that it's very logical thing to happen it's a logical thing when people are left behind as they start to organize themselves and they start to think gone time of day may have been a source for cia double agents media reports claimed the secret service turned prisoners into spies and send them home with the promise of freedom safety for their families and millions in cash according to the claims and installation was
discovered near the controversial facility not as penny lane supposedly use for training the recruits it said this cia chose the prison is considered the most dangerous for the mission and there's been no concrete proof provided for the claims former pentagon security analyst michael maloof says such double agents would have nowhere to go back to because they'd be enemies of the country. any exposure at any time like this of any secret program if there is one is always damaging. the question then is what is the relevance you send these guys back what tangible basis do you have and enough follow up and actually recruiting and i think that's a serious question but to even have a revelation that such a program might even exist it could be very damaging to these individuals and i doubt that those who are in guantanamo now would really be able to go back without
some suspicion being cast upon them and they more. chances are you have to get out as a double agent that's the claim of can a laureus davis a full and on time of a chief prosecutor that i would assume like in many organized crime cases sometimes you got to make a deal with the devil to try to get someone further up the food chain i can take all some consternation from my prosecutors because in some cases we are asking them to prosecute people for war crimes and they're saying wait you mean to prosecute the lieutenant at this level but we've let his colonel go which created this kind of paradox of guantanamo where if you were a big enough fish you potentially got a free ticket home and a wad of cash to take with you if you work you can potentially get prosecuted and if you're in that lower category the people who have been cleared you're still at guantanamo and the detention so the more guilty you are may have been better for you. and coming up later on all seem to national day america of life for me the
palestinian women who have managed to stop families despite their husbands being locked up and israeli jails. something brussels applies the brakes with plans to introduce speed limits on german also bombs that have famously allowed drivers to go as fast as they want all that and more in a couple of minutes. this is the place that has been consecrated to god for almost a thousand of years people jam here twenty some years ago it's very established in leicester quiet on the silence. and people feel the love of
christ for working. people so you can. come and something happens on this island that makes them return to it again and again they say the below saves them. join me james brown on a journey for the soul. only on r.t. . choose your language. of choice make it with no infidels going to stay still some of the. choose the news that concerns you. choose the opinions that degrade to. choose the stories that imply life choose be access to.
quite often countries rich in natural resources are the poorest africa's a colony it's a colony of the big corporations it's a colony of someone's home leaders who are under the thumbs of the big corporations so they have to beg from the world bank's development of social programs goes to pay back debts countries were drowning under the amount of debt that they had and so every year they would borrow money. and they would use that same amount of money to pay back oh that's. all that money really. the wages of debt. write the same.
first rate. and i would think the church. on our reporters twitter. and instagram. would be in the know. this is aussie international coming to life for most i welcome. bahrain is trying to silence a human rights activist and not be a right job by keeping him in prison so says amnesty international the companion i have most of haste to get. going to add a shovel for a lease but also in no rush to set him free. been in jail since august last year for participating in anti-government protests critics say only outside
influence will get bahrain to change course the government will release him different only if there is significant pressure from behind our lives meaning the united states or the united kingdom. in absence of that pressure i think the government will still trying to come in prison in line with their campaign of you know trying to prevent any sort of dissent or create any sort of safe space for dissent we saw in dealey videos of nighttime bombardments of villages in behind with tear gas these are areas where there's no protests whatsoever going on the government just comes in and fires massive amounts of tear gas to punish citizens for expressing dissent or earlier protests so we're not seeing the use of tear gas in behind to disperse violent rioters as much as we're seeing it to punish as a weapon of collective punishment we've seen the government try to hold the so-called national dialogue with the opposition but you can't really have this dialogue writers there's so many political prisoners and representatives of the
opposition major players of the opposition in prison. and bahrain's crown down on dissent are now websites on c dot com including this story about one human rights activist who went to the police to file a case but ended up arrested instead. and now he is a tricky problem how do you start a family if your husband isn't jail a number of palestinian women have found a way by smuggling spawned out of israeli prisons they were driven to their desperate measure and they'd feel is too old for motherhood by the time their partners were released. lydia ramai calls her son american baby the apple of her eye he was born against all odds. when the fact that most was born has given us hope he's everything to us in the end we won despite all the obstacles for us he is the ultimate luxury mushed was born
despite his father's absence a dull career mother ma we is in an israeli prison where he's been sentenced to twenty five years for murder lydia was afraid she'd no longer be able to have children by the time he got out and so instead of waiting for him she did the next best thing and arranged for his sperm to be smuggled out the first time i went to visit my husband with his niece son the soldiers went crazy when they saw the baby like i was carrying a bomb they started asking questions like how come you have a baby smuggling sperm from prison is gaining popularity in the palestinian world but first the community must approve after this happened if the procedure is quite straightforward the first thing they have to get. that they have a sample from that. they get if they get a sample we ask of the woman of the wife of the prisoners to bring with they have to fear is the good related from have side and to first degree with her from her
husband's side. to declare that this bill belonged to the door this woman as one sample can survive for up to forty eight hours before being frozen five years treatment. for years is three months pregnant her husband summer is serving an eighteen year sentence. i haven't had children for eleven years my husband was in prison all this time the first time in prison his wife got pregnant she basically gave hope to all of us. it's a puzzle for the israeli prison service in a mission statement they insist that security arrangements and inmates interactions with the visitors are carefully monitored which makes objects exchanged much more difficult they food evolved to prevent any smuggling of any kind and none of the people we interviewed would give details of how the sperm is smuggled out from under the watchful eye of prison guards there is almost no physical contact between
security prisoners and their families but five babies have been born this way and eighteen women are pregnant. bringing a baby into this work in spite of the fact that his father is in the jews zionists prison is a form of resistance police here are teaming with bank. quakes in the state of texas has triggered suggestions there were manmade independent studies have shown that injecting explosive fluids into oil and gas wells as fracking could be the culprit here and the latest rumble was asked to report six magnitude quake the strongest in several years the process is allowing texas to free up its hard to reach resources and is therefore proving quite a draw for the big oil and gas corporations of all the main texas carbon tilman believes harming the environment for cash could have irreversible effects. some
pretty good that it shows the injection wells which all of the fracking noise is deposited in that they have been linked to these earthquakes and i think you have to be ghoulish do not think that all of things going on underground is going to have you know the long term stability. of the earth at the legislative level the oil and gas industry has a significant influence probably more in the state of taxes than they do in any other state in the united states around the world the impact that this has i mean you know by the time that you. hear the noise and have the earthquakes and smelling the orders and your water has methane in it is too bloated. and so you know the damage that is being done or that's going to be non is going to go on for many many many years and it's not something that you're going to be able to undo. to some other global news in brief this hour cairo has been shaken by antigovernment protests resulting and at least eighty six zero rests security forces use tear gas
while the crowd responded with stones demonstrations of all the days of defiance of a new law which binds gatherings without government approval the recent arrests of many acts of us have added fuel to the public anger over the military's grip on power. to mali now whether to read separatist group that's sad it's ending a cease fire agreement with the government intruding following clashes between the army and demonstrators fascinate protests in the congress are also stay where people demanded french troops leave the country paris is maintaining more than three thousand soldiers in mali following a joint operation with local troops and gave it to our red red bulls in january. one person has been can fund dad and said to have been taken to hospital after a police helicopter crashed into a park's pub in glasgow officials di expect the number of fatalities to rise one
hundred and twenty people were in the building when they chopped out with three people on board the roof several are still said to be trapped inside the pub it's not clear what caused the crash. germany makes some of the world's fastest cars not surprising really one they have the world's fastest roads speeds on postle the also bond network dictated simply by how far you can push the pedal to the mets hold but as a piece on the reports now as one big food waiting to stomp on the brakes there. but when you go past the sign this is one twenty with a line through it the gloves are off baby you can drive you can drive really government is off your back in germany and you drive says drive as fast as you want is that. it's the country right now throughout the world for its. unlimited speeds germany could be said to fall foul of the regulations that could see drivers
of the country paying high performance limited to a maximum of about one hundred fifty kilometers an hour the plan would see stated with a device that automatically applies the brakes whenever a car exceeds the speed limit in the area the idea is to increase highway safety thirty thousand people die every year when your throats become the new five true is the notion that a slow down will save lives statistics also show a major accidents etc. on the autobahn this is on the streets off side the autobahn and this is already very limited. and for some it's a clear indicator of the european commission overtaking which should be national musses the problem at the moment is that many of those rules are being made by the commission and not being subject to democratic accountability in the european
parliament and that seems to me is the source of a lot of the frustration and tensions in countries a decision on whether to move ahead with the idea is expected in the new year german drivers however have already made up their minds it will kill the joy of driving. i'm against speed limit it will cause those jobs but all it'll all be will not allow that to happen people will fall asleep at that speed the whole reason we built beautiful roads was to drive on them properly it's going to be a tough one for the e.u. to convince germans that their speed she'd be in the hands of brussels that south will autobahn i was dxed the germans. to the french or roast beef to the british. not things they going to want to give up control of easily. these are all of a. times coming up next breaking the sat with.
i hate to be a downer but i really think the olympics have lost all meaning in the past when there was the cold war it was like a battle between two ideologies taking place in the abstract and the one nine hundred thirty six olympics nazi pseudo science their self-proclaimed superiority was put on trial for the whole world to see and fight the olympics having the majority of the countries on earth participating they're now horribly horribly bland one could argue that they have become a great way for countries to show off their ex used to build up some infrastructure by think this is a big misconception let's look back to two thousand a lympics in beijing yes china has really developed in the last twenty years but
the olympics really teach us anything about this country with a radically different political system or anything about their ancient culture or the way they think or the way they live no nothing at all all we saw were some flags and some pandas that rather unique stadium which was mostly the work of a swiss company yeah i have to say i think the olympic flame is kind of burnt out over the years although. i have to admit that saying the torch in the space was kind of neat i think that when and if the world ever becomes an ideological battle ground again and then the olympics will become worth watching but for now it's just generic sports from generic countries a generic stadiums but that's just my opinion. paula and i have a martin and this is breaking the sat so qatar is roughly the size of connecticut
but the small persian gulf state is emerging as a major player on the world stage in fact it's set to host the twenty twenty two world cup of course an event this size requires an unimaginable amount of building and labor and that's where nepal comes in this in a country of two million people there are currently three hundred forty thousand nepalese migrant workers many of which been assigned to world cup construction but according to several reports released by the guardian the workers face a brutal working conditions long hours lack of pay and wretched living quarters and just yesterday it was confirmed that seventy napoli's labors have already died while working on world cup projects yet both the nepalese and qatari governments refuse to acknowledge this massive human rights problem so if you're sick of world powers treating migrant laborers like garbage and tell fifo to pressure qatar and put an end to this modern day slavery. the possibly it was a really very hard to take
a. look. at how to act with the territory where the. elite. well d.c. is officially closed for business and of course the mainstream media is doing a wall to wall coverage on nothing but the shutdown. united states government shut down on that as the subject of this evening's talking points memo the two
sides are digging in it is day number two of the government shutdown and the day begins with few answers as to how to break the logjam can honestly say that only the republicans are being sensible in all of this and only that and all the democrats are not being sensible really alice yes it's everyone's favorite game show the capitol hill blame game first the clock was counting down to the shutdown and now the clock is counting up tell them what the american people want to join in actually nobody wins here in fact federal employees are the biggest losers of all as congress continues to twiddle their thumbs while still getting paid eight hundred thousand other government always won't be but while the corporate media is putting all this effort to treating this like a new year's countdown let's take a look at what they haven't been covering starting a new york where israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu has turned to speak at the u.n. g.a. and after just a few syllables the focus of this speech was clear iran and the demonization of its new president. rouhani doesn't sound like
a million new jobs but when it comes to iran's nuclear weapons program the only difference between them is this oh they do judge it was a wolf in wolf's clothing who honey is a wolf in sheep's clothing a wolf who thinks he can pull the dogs the wool over the eyes. of the international community oh a wolf in sheep's clothing i'm shaking in my heels baby you're the man don't be fooled by this new leaders peace offering remember we've been warned before. there's an old saying in tennessee i know it's in texas probably in tennessee this is fool me once. shame on. shame on you. if you can't get fooled again you fooled the world once i.
